it was amazing
Recommended for: Young adult readers
Read in October, 2007

This is a tender and innocent look at the dysfunction of a family coming to grips with the father's alcoholism. It is told from the teen girl's POV. The family members keep secrets and think that is what is holding them together but it prevents them making friends. When the narrator makes a friend in the new town, she risks the family secret by no longer telling tall tales. This will be an important book for young people , especially those with similar family issues.
